Happy Endings Axed By ABC -- Next Stop USA?

Happy Endings CancelledAnd now for some not-so-ah-mazing news: ABC has pulled the plug on Happy Endings.

RELATED | ABC Renews Grey’s, Scandal, Suburgatory, Nashville and 6 Others

USA Network has expressed interest in pulling a Cougar Town/TBS and acquiring the series, but no deal is in place at this time. A insider tells TVLine that Sony — the studio behind the show — is going to “fight like hell” to save the show. So there’s that.

TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect this unfortunate development.

  13. marykon13 says:

    How come great shows never get a “Happy Ending”?

  14. Tru says:

    No surpise there. But PLEASE USA NETWORK or TBS pick up this amazing show. This is one of the greatest shows on TV right now. Sure the season finale sucked but this has got to be on TV again

    Tweet @USA_Network! We must save Happy Endings!

  18. Nooooooooooooooooooooooo! Come on USA!

  19. CJS says:

    And in contrast to NBC, ABC is actually making the right decisions. I’m not surprised. Ratings trump quality (NBC not included)

  21. Fanof SoManyShows says:

    Welp, can’t say it’s a shocker. It was an awesome show but I’ll be satisfied if it pulls an Arrested Development and comes back in a few years. Thanks to the cast and crew for the memories and three seasons.

  22. Katherine says:

    USA! USA! USA!

  23. Babygate says:

    Yes! There’s only so much you can do with such a sup-par product. The writers ruined this show by targeting a very narrow demographic.

    • Malachi says:

      “The writers ruined this show by targeting a very narrow demographic.”
      Yes, it’s true. “Happy Endings” targeted people who enjoy *good* television. Truly a losing strategy. Thanks for pointing that out.

      • Jessica says:

        What! NO! I completely disagree. The writers are still at their best as far as clever and hilarious writing. The actors have great timing, and give SO much life to the writing/ character’s. I like where the writers are ultimately leaning towards, and that’s random days/events in the character’s lives and less bringing a story together. Go the Seinfeld route, writers. Serious plots ruin a funny show!

  24. Drizz says:

    I like the show, hate they didn’t get a “Happy Ending” (come on USA) but I will have to say season 3’s writing was not nearly as good as 1 or 2.

    • jenna says:

      have to agree with this! I’ve re-watched seasons 1 and 2 multiple times but unfortunately in my opinion the majority of season 3 hasn’t been worth a second viewing. Love the show though so hoping it gets a chance on a different network!

      • Michi says:

        Uhm what? I barely got through Season 1, season 2 got better, but season 3 has been incredible!

      • M says:

        completely agree with this sentiment! I definitely noticed a change in writing style during season 3, and as with you both I didn’t find it to be for the better

    • SweetD says:

      Tyler’s funeral, the thanksgiving episode, the prank episode

      Season 3 was just as good as the earlier 2 seasons

  25. Courtney says:


  26. Aimee says:

    Fingers crossed for a USA save…

  27. Megera says:

    ugh ive been waiting for news on this show all day, and this is not what i wanted to hear. please save one of the best comedies on television, USA! I think the happy endings gang would fit in pretty darn well with the ‘characters welcome’ motto!!

  28. Liz says:

    USA PLEASE PICK UP THIS SHOW. I think tbs should try for it as we’ll. A cougar town/happy endings line up would be AMAHZING

  29. scorpo says:

    Come on USA!!!

  30. David says:

    Everybody here who has twitter and has twitter has to tweet @USA_Network and make it treading. USA will notice

  31. Evan says:

    USA or TBS pick it up!

  32. Nina says:


  33. Tiera says:

    This is horrible news, I really hope USA hell anyone picks it up

  34. Elle says:

    Ughhhh…. I cannot believe it! This show is ah-may-zing! Lol. The chemistry and comedic timing is out of this world. I hope USA picks it up. It’ll be odd… they don’t have any 1/2 hour comedies do they? Maybe they plan on changing things around over there – I mean, they must be if they are interested in Happy Endings. They’re mostly known for their hour long dramas. Even though Psych, my favorite show on the planet, is a comedy, it’s also very dramatic… sometimes. Lol. Anyways, maybe they’ll put it on the same night as Psych. That would rock my freaking world.

  35. David says:

    Yes, it treading. KEEP it up you guys

  36. Sam says:

    Should have kept it after MF, was doing decently there.

  37. Drew says:

    USA, if you’re reading this then PLEASE pick up Happy Endings!!!!! This one of the ONLY few shows my family gathers around to watch!!! So upset at abc but please help the fans!!!!

  38. Eli says:



  39. A.D. says:

    Come on USA pick up this amazing show…screw ABC!

  40. Sam says:

    Boooo! Not fun times! USA need to pick this little gem of a show up! Such a talented cast!

  41. Chris says:

    This would be a great companion to Cougar Town on TBS…they are pretty much the Cul de sac crew, but 15 years younger

  42. AJ says:

    If USA or TBS don’t pick up the show, it will free Elisha Cuthbert up to return as Kim Bauer in 24’s return!!! :)

    • 24forever says:

      OMG yes she will be able to return as Kim Bauer on 24 and reunite with her on screen dad Jack Bauer :) I am so happy 24 is back. I hope chloe comes back too. :)

  43. Mike says:

    In devastated, but we can’t act like this was unexpected, hopefully it will get picked up at USA.

  44. Amelia says:

    Son of a gun! Why does ABC do this to good shows?

  45. Dennis says:

    Ah noo! Please USA! This show is close to syndication, please save it!!!!!

    USA! USA! USA!

  46. Josh Emerson says:

    Please let USA or TBS pick it up!!! Or Netflix, Amazon, really anywhere at all as long as we get more.

  47. Shawnna says:

    This show needs to be picked up by another network. The cast is too great together for this to be the end. Come on USA, Amazon, Netflix, TBS… ANYONE!

  48. Juan says:

    Please USA, PLEASE!!!!!!
